A touch of Korean for your Thursday

From Xinmsn Entertainment :


"Harisu made a shocking debut in 2001. When the beauty with a voluptuous body revealed her Adam’s apple in a TV commercial, the term “transgender” was brought to the forefront in Korea for the first time. And unlike other sexual minorities, Harisu has been catapulted to stardom suited to her stage name, which originates from the term “hot issue.”

Since then, she had enjoyed huge popularity as a singer, actress and entertainer on TV shows and has often been described as “more beautiful than women.” She left the spotlight in 2007 after marrying celebrity Mickey Jung but recently returned in the musical “Drag Queen” in which she plays a show girl."

This is actually part of a very revealing interview with Harisu as she talks about familiar topics within the transgender community.  Prejudice, suicide as well as the omnipresent criticism from within from Trans Nazi's and others are discussed.  Follow the link above for a look.
